Organizing an incentive trip to Costa del Sol? Here are 6 tips to help you plan

Company incentive trips are great for a variety of reasons: they increase employee motivation, improve relationships between team members, reinforce the feeling of “belonging” at a company and boost work morale overall. 

Whatever you decide to use as an incentive trip, make sure it stays true to your company’s values. Luckily, Malaga offers a world of possibilities when it comes to hotels, activities, restaurants and views. Find out more about what to do on your incentive trip to Costa del Sol below.


Reward employees

If the reason for the trip is to reward employee effort, make them feel rewarded! Choose one of Costa del Sol’s five-star “Great Luxury” hotels with spas, swimming pools, great restaurants and more. If you’re looking for ideas, try the Gran Meliá Don Pepe (Marbella), La Bobadilla A Royal Hideaway Hotel (Loja) or Healthouse Las Dunas Health & Beach Spa (Estepona).

Choose golf, choose fun

Golf is a great group activity for a work trip! Both fun and stress-free, this sport can accommodate any skill level. Costa del Sol is the ultimate golf destination in Spain, and the "Costa del Golf" has everything from standalone golf schools to golf hotels with seaside views

Less is more

Don’t overwhelm everyone with a busy agenda! This is a celebratory vacation, after all. Give attendees time to relax by the pool or go to the beach. Luckily, the southern coast of Spain is perfect for both.


Gala dinner

It’s always a good idea to end an unforgettable corporate trip with an unforgettable dinner. In cities like Malaga or Marbella, luxury restaurants abound. Try El Lago Restaurant (Marbella) or José Carlos García Restaurant (Málaga), both of which have been recognized in major restaurant publications like the Repsol Guide for Spanish cuisine or Michelin Guide.


Add some local culture

You can’t go all the way to Malaga and not experience its local culture. This part of Spain has plenty of museums, castles, fortresses, exhibitions, theaters, churches, cathedrals and more, and travelers to the area are encouraged to visit them. Add a few sites to the itinerary to really enrich your trip to Costa del Sol.

Need an adrenaline rush? Give your travelers the option to participate in a balloon fight, go on a biking excursion or try different water sports like a catamaran ride, a canoe race or paddle boarding lessons. It’s a good way for guests to come back to the office fully renewed.
